According to the ets.org website, the "Praxis II Subject Assessments measure knowledge of specific subjects that K-12 educators will teach, as well as general and subject-specific teaching skills and knowledge."
As of September 1, 2014, the Praxis II exam is required for educators receiving initial certification or additional field and subject endorsements (middle grades is the exception). UNK will not recommend students for certification before they have taken the appropriate Praxis II exam.
Students who complete an education program, apply, and pay for a Nebraska certificate before September 1, 2015, are only required to take the appropriate Praxis II. Students who apply and pay for a Nebraska certificate on or after September 1, 2015, are required to pass the appropriate Praxis II.
The Praxis II is not required for those receiving supplemental endorsements or the middle grades field endorsement.
You may take the exam at UNK's testing center, located in the College of Education Building, or at any other authorized testing center in the nation.
